Unruly White Sox Fan Slaps Biggio's Wife

Chicago manager offers apology

HOUSTON (AP) _ White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has apologized

after Astros second baseman Craig Biggio's wife was slapped by a

male fan in Chicago.

The incident happened Sunday night in the stands at U-S Cellular

Field, where the White Sox beat Houston in Game two of the World


Biggio says his wife, Patty, wasn't hurt.

Game three is tonight in Houston.

Guillen issued a public apology on behalf of his organization.

Biggio says the fan slapped his wife then tried to run away --

before the player's brother-in-law ended up "putting him against

the wall."

Chicago police say no criminal complaint has been filed.

Astros manager Phil Garner says it's his understanding that the

fan had been gouging her a bit, pulling Patty Biggio's hair and

doing some other "stupid things."
